Take the car for a test drive, around town, and on the freeway. Notice how well and when it shifts, listen for any unusual noises and rattles when hitting bumps. Have the car put on a lift and check the underneath side for any wets spots of pssoble leaks. If possible, remove the wheels and check the brakes and struts.

He should have all the service receipts, ask for them. A friend had expensive problems with his transmission. Remember, he wants to sell it to you rather than you want to buy it from him. Keep the power on your side and don't be afraid to offer a really low price. You'll hear one of two answers: yes or no. Its not the last beemer anyway.

I have a 97 528i BMW recently Ive been having problems starting it . When I turn the key it will try to start but wont actually turn over. I have a new battery so Im thinkin its the starter maybe??


It is most likely the immobiliser rather than starter if it does try to start, is it automatic or manual gearbox? If automatic, than try to take the negative cable of the battery and leave for 15-20 minutes without connection, than switch lights on before reconnecting the negative, this resets the computer so it might help. If it is manual, try a push start if the car starts and runs than it is the starter problem, if not than it will be immobiliser problem.

Bmw 528i 99. I have a strange metallic noise from underneath car.


You may have bad motor mounts that are allowing some solid part of the engine to touch the frame someplace causing the vibrations to travel up throughout the car including under the center console. They are jelly filled and seem to go bad quite often. There is lots of stuff underneath the car as well including all kinds of plastic/metal covers over everything that can have some mounting loose that can be the issue. My son has a BMW which he does most of the repairs on himself and between the two of us we have found out that nothing...absolutely nothing...on the BMW is what is usually expected in repairing a car since they take delight in designing them very very differently....many of the features are truly amazing and useful but there are also some silly ones and in virtually all cases the seemingly simple thing becomes complicated or difficult when repairing...good luck.
